After being encouraged to purchase a TacOps bolt knob and also being informed where to get one (both by "Quick"), I decided to try my hand at installing it. My only vise is on the bench in my construction trailer and it was miles away. (I couldn't wait until it came back) So I had to improvise.

Next find the center line


Mark a cut line

And off it comes


Find the center, drill, bevel, insert stud, silver solder, and clean-up with a file







Add touch-up black and install knob


Install in rifle and look "real cool"



I could use a recommendation on a good black tactical coating, as I only have touch-up blue on it now.

Good job! It really looks professional. I really like to see write ups like this.
I was a little intimidated at first, but things went well.

Thanks for the idea. I could still use an easy to apply coating to finish the job off right.

Mmm, Im not sure really, I didn't silver solder mine, I tapped the thread and did it that way. Meant that I didn't discolor the bolt handle. Mmm, if you are a member of SC, ask some of the blokes there, Matt (Monteboy83) does them for people, ask him what he uses.

I'm not a member, but I could join. Thought about threading mine also, so as not to heat the bolt. Maybe next time.

Yeah, thats it mate. I did that to avoid harming the bolt. Also, you could remove it and change the bolt knob if you soo wished. And you dont have to pay to join up to the forums on there. Its very informative. Ive learnt a ton from the blokes and Cat there.

It was a fun project and it turned out well. I really like the knob. I like it so much that I bought their cheek pad also. (TacOps)

They sell the mini sized 8balls for the half sized bar tables. If you need smaller they sell the large keychain type. That would be cool as hell lol.
